Marvel's The Avengers at New York's Tribeca Film Festival

The Avengers will assemble in theaters on May 4th, but they seem to be assembling everywhere this month! The Avengers themed monorail debuted at Disney World a few weeks ago and there have been plenty of stills, clips and even an Avengers Lego poster revealed!

Based on the comic book series from Marvel, The Avengers stars Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man), Chris Evans (Captain America), Mark Ruffalo (The Incredible Hulk), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow) and Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye) as the iconic Marvel Super Heroes.

During The Tribeca Film Festival, The Avengers will close out the festival on April 28th. The TFF will also be honoring local heroes from the U.S. Military, fire departments, first responders and police agencies by inviting them to attend the festival and meet the cast of the film.

Kevin Feige, Marvel Studios' Producer says, "We are proud that Marvel's The Avengers is the closing film of this year's Tribeca Film Festival and we are excited to welcome local heroes to the screening as special guests. We all know and love our iconic Super Heroes, but when it really counts, it's our real-life heroes who save the world every day by making it a better place for all of us."

Director Joss Whedon adds, "Showing at Tribeca is both an honor and a double homecoming for me, who grew up in Manhattan, and for the movie, which wrapped production there. I'm thoroughly psyched to be closing the festival with our intimate little think-piece."

The 11th annual Tribeca Film Festival will take place from April 18-29, 2012.
